(Only on Firefox) Why links to pdfs on my website ask me whether I want to save file?

The two pages of my website can be found here:

https://www.lightfigures.com/metaphysical-diaries/ https://www.lightfigures.com/spiritual-diaries/

For some reason, and only on Mozilla Firefox (not Explorer or my Tablet) when I click on the links that should bring up pdf files, I am shown a save the file dialogue box. This only happened recently when i made some changes to the WordPress specs, but these changes did not have on effect on other browsers. Any help here would be really appreciated!

Thanks,

-Charles

You can reload web page(s) and bypass the cache to refresh possibly outdated or corrupted files.

  • hold down the Shift key and left-click the Reload button
  • press "Ctrl + F5" or press "Ctrl + Shift + R" (Windows,Linux)
  • press "Command + Shift + R" (Mac)

You can check the Portable Document Format (PDF) setting in "Options/Preferences -> General -> Applications"
